Satin Ribbon Flowers and Gift box with cards

I have had a few people asking me about the satin ribbon flowers I have been using on some of my recent cards. Unfortunately, due to this being a busy time of year for Craft shows etc., Mei hasn't had time to get them loaded up to the online store. If you would like to purchase some, then all you need to do is contact the store either by email - info@meiflower.co.uk
or telephone - 0161 790 3292
just explain what you are after and they will sort it out for you.

Here's a little gift box I made, it contains four Christmas cards and envelopes.

Gorgeous Ribbon Flowers

Meiflower have recently stocked some gorgeous new satin ribbon flowers and Mei asked me to do her some samples for the shows. These are two of the cards I made, there will be a couple of wedding cards later in the week.

The image, papers and spotty flowers all came from a kit called Baby Mine Girl which comes from Crazy 4 Monograms, the foliage is from a couple of Marianne dies and the buttons, ribbon and gorgeous ribbon flowers are from Meiflower.

This was a really quick card to make, using an image and papers from Nitwits Bundle of joy kit, once again the ribbon, gems and ribbon flower is from Meiflower

The flowers come in a wide variety of colours, but I don't think they've been loaded up onto the store yet as they are busy travelling around the country to all the craft shows at the moment. If you would like some just phone your order through and tell them what you are after.

Reindeer Pull

I love the image on this card, it reminds me of a Labrador dog we had when I was younger who used to drag you around, whenever you tried to take him for a walk LOL!

The card was made from a Paper Creator kit, called Reindeer Pull, I added some jingle bells to the sentiment panel, tied together with silver metallic cord, and placed some Cats eyes Dazzlers along the pink paper strip. The Dazzlers, cord and bells are all from Meiflower

(The Dazzlers aren't actually called Dazzlers, I don't think Mei has given them a name, but that's what my friends and I call them. They are not on the website yet so if you wanted some you would have to email or telephone your order through and ask for them, they come in Square, Rectangle, heart and circle shapes too.)

Thanks for Stopping by,

One Martini, two martini.......

three martini..........Floor! I love this sentiment, and it was perfect for my friends birthday card.

Image and Martini sentiment - Martini Chicks - Designed to Delight 
as usual I've coloured it in Photoshop
Papers - Doofles - Kristen-Cronin Barrow
Grosgrain Ribbon and Laugh charm - Meiflower

I made the bow by looping the grosgrain ribbon backwards and forward and making each loop a little bigger than the last and holding it together with double sided tape, a little piece wrapped over the top finished it off.
The little swizzle stick tucked behind the sentiment was made using a jewellery making eye pin, and some small beads, with the charm dangling from the 'eye'
